How has it helped my organization?

It was very effective to highlight the low and medium level vulnerabilities which are generally easy to miss out.In certain cases we observed that high-level vulnerabilities could be pointed out with ease.

What needs improvement?

The higher level vulnerabilities like Cross-Site Scripting, SQL Injection, and other higher level injection attacks are difficult to highlight using Netsparker.
